During the NSTA Annual Conference, Carolina Biological Supply Company, the leading school science supplier and NSTA sponsor, and the Smithsonian Science Education Center launched Smithsonian Science for the Classroom„¢. Setting the standard in 3D learning and 3D assessment, the curriculum provides cohesive storylines, superior teacher support, and research-supported instructional design that is backed by proven results with point-of-use support. Smithsonian Science for the Classroom is a high-quality core science and engineering curriculum program specifically developed to meet the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). This elementary curriculum is designed to engage, inspire, and connect grades K to 5 students firsthand to the world around them. Smithsonian Science for the Classroom helps teachers to integrate science, technology, math and engineering through engaging and hands-on lessons. The curriculum is available now and includes print and digital components, as well as hands-on materials.

Educators are invited to visit Carolinas booth #1345 at NSTA to see previews and meet Smithsonian leaders and science developers. Dr. Carol ODonnell, Dr. Brian Mandell and lead curriculum developers Jean Flanagan and Dr. Sarah Glassman of the Smithsonian Science Education Center will be excited to visit with teachers and discuss Smithsonian Science for the Classroom from 2 to 4 p.m. today, and 10 to 11 a.m. tomorrow, on Friday, April 12. Carolina is also giving away free autographed Smithsonian Science Stories readers and Group Roles posters. Additionally, the Smithsonian and Carolina are presenting workshops on the new curriculum such as Smithsonian 3D Learning and 3D Assessment: Two Sides of One Coin.

Smithsonian Science for the Classroom bundles NGSS Performance Expectations in a way that answers a large driving question. Blending content, practices, and crosscutting concepts into a coherent storyline that addresses each question, the hands-on science and engineering modules were designed to engage and challenge students while meeting Performance Expectations. The modules integrate science and engineering seamlessly, as intended by NGSS. Guidance is provided through call-out boxes on where, when and how students are applying the three dimensions of NGSS.

Smithsonian Science for the Classroom was designed new from the ground up to address the complexity and creativity of the NGSS, said Dr. Brian Mandell, Division Director of Curriculum at the Smithsonian Science Education Center. It was written in-house, by Smithsonian staff developers, which means that our team was able to constantly collaborate, check each other’s work, brainstorm new ideas, communicate with our field-test teachers and ensure cohesion in the program.
